The sports betting site Bovada lists the Red Sox as favorites to win the A.L. pennant, and WEEI's Kirk Minihane finds that, uh, surprising.
The Red Sox have traded Will Middlebrooks to the Padres for catcher Ryan Hanigan, according to multiple reports. and MLB Network's Jon Morosi reports the Red Sox are talking to at least one team about acquiring Allen Craig.
